Probably Best Restaurant in Waterton

Ate here both nights of our stay. The view of the lake and mountains from the patio or the inside tables by the windows is fabulous. The food was good, although better the first night than the second. The first night, my husband had steak and I had a shrimp dish. Both were good. The second... read more

This was touted as the top restaurant in town so we saved it for our last night. We were disappointed. It was loud and expensive for what we got. The best part of the meal was the ceasar salads. They were excellent. Everything else....so-so. My braised short-ribs were average. The side veggies were a welcome addition to our vacation diet.

Went to the restaurant for breakfast. Food was average for bacon and eggs. Nice view looking over the lake. Minus-FLIES everywhere!! Also service is slow. 20+ minutes for basic order.

The food and the service was awesome. The view from the Chophouse is amazing. We ate in the restaurant twice and they catered the wedding reception we were attending in Waterton-all the meals were delicious. Very impressed.

This restaurant is on the shores of Waterton Lake. The patio is alongside a beautiful park-like area. The waiter was courteous. I had a flatbread and my husband had fish and chips. We were both pleased with the meal.

Sat on the back patio with a view that is hard to beat. Great atmosphere. I can't comment on the food too much because we only have ever come for the nachos and beer and drinks. Although the burgers and other food going by always look great . The nachos are incredible! The bar drinks are all great too. Kudos... More

Title says it all. Very long wait. When member of party inquired, was told in a patronizing way that large tables, take longer. Putting away silverware from dishwasher right next to our table. Noisy. Again a rude comment from manager when elder asked about the need to do forks next to our table. When food did arrive, fries were cold.

This was the worst experience we have ever had. Upon being seated, we were rudely told (not informed) there would be a 15% gratutity because we were so large.(10 adults) We waited over an hour for our food, which was then cold and terrible. In the meantime, the manager and some of his staff sorted and rattled the flatware on... More

Our first experience was having appetizers, sitting outside overlooking the lake. Wonderful! We returned that night for dinner. Exceptional! Christina was our server, and I can't remember when we've had better service. She is very professional, yet personable. She made our dining experience great! We returned the next afternoon, after sightseeing in the area. Sofia was our server and again,... More

We have been here several times over the past many years and have had inconsistent quality for sure. They seem to have improved because this time all of our meals were really well prepared. We had calamari for a starter and it was cooked as it should be- crispy but not overcooked and rubbery. I had the short ribs for... More
